I live and work in the Capital Region of New York State. I am a graduate of Lansingburgh High School, Troy, NY (1973); Hartwick College (1977) and Albany Law School (1983).

 

I currently use Canon EOS 5D Mark III and 7D bodies with Canon EF 24-105mm f//4L IS USM (2/2016), EF 35mm f/2 IS USM, EF 40mm f/2.8 STM, EF 50mm f/1.8 STM, EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM (12/2007), EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, EF 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro USM (5/2016) and Extender EF 1.4XII (12/2009) lenses. I also have a Canon EOS SL1 which I use with EF-S 24mm f/2.8 and 55-250mm f/4-5.6 STM lenses and an EOS 630 film body.

 

In the past, I have used EOS 1D Mark III, 5D Mark II, 5D, 80D, 70D, 60D, 50D and 30D, bodies, and too many Canon and Sigma lenses to mention.

 

I use 430EX II, 270EX II and 90EX Canon Speedlites with various light modifiers.

 

Tripods I use are the Bogen 3021 legs w/Manfrotto Hydrostatic Ball Head (468MGRC0), a Bogen 3001 legs (altered for extreme low shooting) w/3047 head and a Benro A150EXU. My monopod is a Bogen 3016 w/234 head and RC0 rapid connect plate adapter.

 

I use a variety of bags manufactured by ThinkTank Photo, Lowepro, Mountainsmith and Tamrac and I process my RAW images on a 13 inch MacBook Pro (2010) with Canon's Digital Photo Professional and/or HDRSoft's Photomatix Essentials and Photomatix Pro.
